    Actor Harry Dean Stanton dies at 91

    Harry Dean Stanton, Character Actor Who Became a Star, Dies at 91

    Harry Dean Stanton, the gaunt, hollow-eyed, scene-stealing character actor who broke out of obscurity in his late 50s in two starring movie roles and capped his career with an acclaimed characterization as a corrupt polygamist on the HBO series “Big Love,” died on Friday in Los Angeles. He was 91.

    His death, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, was confirmed by his agent, John S. Kelly.

    Mr. Stanton spent two decades typecast in Hollywood as cowboys and villains before his unusual talents began to attract notice on the strength of his performances in the movies “Straight Time” (1978); “Alien,” “Wise Blood” and “The Rose” (all 1979); and “Escape From New York” (1981)...
